"As I stood over my friend's lifeless body, my heart just shattered. I know she didn't deserve to die like that."

While this story (above) made CNN's Nancy Grace and Atlanta, G.A.'s (Buckhead) is often referred to as "The Beverly Hills of the South", it shouldn't matter if it was Mayberry. The execution-styled murder of Zaquavia needs to be solved, at least for her kids and family sake. Questions remain. Was Zaquavia the intended target or someone else who let her take the fall? Was she just in the wrong place at the wrong time? Was this crime a set up? The last few people to see her alive in Atlanta should be the ones answering these questions.

- Quadruple murder took place in Durham, N.C. November 2005. Both of these cases has similarities. Roderick Duncan is the only one arrested and awaits trial in the quadruple murders. There are a few more out there that hasn't been brought to justice. Duncan is currently in Federal prison serving time out his ten year sentence for drug charges.
Truth is, the "stop snitching" attitudes and campaign that's going on in our communities, is helping prolong justice. It's funny how attitudes change when it's someone we love and care about. Also, many believe racial disparities, status and gender play a role in cases involving African - Americans. Once a life is taken, you can't undo the damage. IF YOU WANT CHANGE, YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE CORRECTIVE COURSE OF ACTION & FOLLOW THROUGH.
